“You know that feeling of invincibility you sometimes get, especially when young and testing yourself – well that could be because actually know deep down that we are indeed eternal. We come into this world to live a life, to experience it, from somewhere else, some other plane, but we are programmed by all around us to deny or forget this – until one day we may remember again. That feeling of blissful reconnection with our source can be invoked through nature, beautiful writing or art or music, any detailed craft or work of discovery or personal dedication, meditation or other mentally balancing practice, or even through religious experience if there is a pure communion (not a pretence of it). But we should not yearn to return too soon, we should accept that we have come here for the duration of each life, and revel in the chance to learn and grow on this splendid planet. We can draw a deep sense of being-ness. peace, and love from this connection, which will sustain us through any trial. Once nurtured, this becomes stronger than any other connection, so of course our relationships here are most joyful when they allow us the personal freedom to spend time developing and celebrating that connection. Our deepest friendships form with those we can share such time and experiences with – discussing, meditating, immersing ourselves in nature, or creating our music, art, written or other works. Our journeys here are voyages of discovery, opening out the wonders within and all around. What better companions could we have than those who are able to fully share in such delights with us?”
There’s a feeling of enthusiasm and invincibility this morning with the Moon void-of-course first thing. This may be a bit of a Pollyannaish* attitude as in looking for the silver lining, we fail to see the stumbling blocks that will trip you up again and again. You’ll have to deal with them sooner rather than later, which may put a damper on that enthusiasm and optimism.
The remedy for these unrealistic perceptions is to focus on ourselves instead of what we may think is wrong with other people or the world at large. Positivity and negativity are values that we humans assign to people, things, and events, that do not, on their own, hold any value at all. They are zero sum items that we feel we must place value on. “This was a wonderful day!” or “What a lousy day!” are both human-made values based solely on our perception. How difficult is it then to seek out what worked and what didn’t without taking ownership of either? That’s where we stumble. We take ownership of things that are well beyond our control and tend to take them personally because of it. Detach yourself from assigning value to things that don’t require it. We are the only animals that do such a thing. It’s not part of the natural world.
Tomorrow is another story.
*Pollyannaish: When you put a positive spin on everything, even things that call for sadness or discouragement, you’re being Pollyannaish. The word comes from a 1913 children’s book by Eleanor H. Porter, Pollyanna, about a young girl who tries to find something positive in every situation — a trick she calls “the Glad Game.”
